Nationals' Joan Adon: Sent back to Triple-A
The Nationals optioned Adon to Triple-A Rochester on Saturday.
Adon was returned to the minors one day after he was summoned from Rochester to make a spot start during the Nationals' doubleheader Friday with the Phillies. Though he tied his season high with six strikeouts in the outing, he gave up four runs on seven hits and a walk and was dealt his league-high 11th loss. Adon will now make regular turns in the Triple-A rotation with the Nationals having settled on Paolo Espino and Jackson Tetreault as the back-end options in its rotation until at least one of Stephen Strasburg (ribs) or Anibal Sanchez (neck) returns from the injured list....

Nationals' Joan Adon: Knocked around in return to majors
Adon (1-11) took the loss in the first game of Friday's doubleheader against the Phillies, giving up four runs on seven hits across five innings. He struck out six batters and walked one.
Adon's strikeout total matched his season high, but that was about the only positive he can take from another unimpressive outing. The Phillies got to him early, with Nick Castellanos doubling in the top of the first inning and two more runs coming around in the third. The outing raised Adon's ERA slightly to 6.97, which doesn't make a good case for him sticking around after the doubleheader.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Joan Adon: Rejoining big club for spot start
The Nationals plan to call up Adon from Triple-A Rochester to start the first game of Friday's doubleheader with the Phillies, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.
Washington is likely to designate Adon as its 27th man for the twin bill, so he's expected to be returned to Rochester immediately after the spot start. He'll be rejoining the Nationals after going 1-10 while supplying a 6.95 ERA, 1.76 WHIP and 44:35 K:BB in 55.2 innings over 12 starts before being demoted to Triple-A earlier this month....

Nationals' Joan Adon: First to double-digit losses
Adon (1-10) took the loss Tuesday as the Nationals were routed 12-2 by the Marlins, getting hammered for eight runs on seven hits and two walks over three-plus innings. He struck out two.
After coughing up five runs in the second inning, Adon got the hook in the fourth after a three-run blast by Miami's backup catcher Nick Fortes. The 23-year-old right-hander is the first pitcher in the majors to reach 10 losses, a dubious achievement that owes as much to the struggles of the team around him as his own ineffectiveness. With Stephen Strasburg (neck) set to rejoin the rotation this week, the Nats could mercifully pull the plug on Adon's stint as a starter -- an assignment in which he's produced a 6.95 ERA, 1.76 WHIP and 44:35 K:BB through 55.2 innings....

Nationals' Joan Adon: Demoted to Triple-A
The Nationals optioned Adon to Triple-A Rochester on Wednesday.
Adon's demotion comes after he took his league-high 10th loss of the season while giving up eight earned runs in three innings during Tuesday's 12-2 loss to the Marlins. The rough outing inflated Adon's season ERA and WHIP to 6.95 and 1.76, respectively. With Adon heading to the minors, Evan Lee is expected to take over as Washington's No. 5 starter.... See More ...

Nationals' Joan Adon: Allows 10 baserunners in loss
Adon (1-9) took the loss Thursday, allowing three runs on six hits and four walks while striking out four in 5.1 innings during an 8-1 defeat at the hands of Cincinnati.
The rookie right-hander gave up a three-run blast to Joey Votto in the first inning. The damage could have been greater, but Adon was able to induce two double-play balls during his time on the mound. It was the fifth time in 11 starts that he walked four or more batters, and despite the mediocre showing, the outing actually lowered his ERA to 5.98. Adon's next start is likely to come in Miami next week.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Joan Adon: Quality start Saturday
Adon didn't factor into the decision in a 3-2 loss to the Rockies during the second game of Saturday's doubleheader, allowing two unearned runs on six hits and two walks over six innings. He struck out three.
The quality start was only the second of the season in 10 trips to the mound for Adon, who tossed 62 of 89 pitches for strikes before exiting. A setback for Joe Ross (elbow) might have bought Adon some more time in the Nationals' rotation, but the rookie will need to improve significantly on his 6.08 ERA, 1.67 WHIP and 38:29 K:BB through 47.1 innings to keep it....

Nationals' Joan Adon: Rocked by Dodgers
Adon (1-8) took the loss in Monday's 10-1 rout at the hands of the Dodgers, surrendering six runs on seven hits and four walks over 4.2 innings. He struck out four.
It was another rough outing for the 23-year-old, who tossed 58 of 92 pitches for strikes before getting the hook. Adon's eight losses lead the majors, and his 6.97 ERA and 1.72 WHIP make him a prime candidate to lose his rotation spot once one of Joe Ross (elbow) or Stephen Strasburg (neck) rejoin the roster in June....

Nationals' Joan Adon: Stuck with seventh loss
Adon (1-7) took the loss Tuesday, allowing one run on five hits over 4.2 innings as the Nationals fell 5-1 to the Marlins. He struck out two without walking a batter.
The 23-year-old now leads the majors in losses, but this one wasn't really his fault as the Nats gave Adon very little help. He tossed 84 pitches (54 strikes) before exiting, and the right-hander has failed to complete five innings in six of his eight starts this season. Adon will carry a 6.38 ERA, 1.64 WHIP and poor 31:23 K:BB through 36.2 innings into his next outing.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Joan Adon: Takes another loss
Adon (1-6) allowed three earned runs on three hits and five walks while striking out two across 3.2 innings to take the loss Thursday against the Mets.
Adon struggled mightily with his command, which ultimately sunk his outing. He allowed three walks before a two-RBI single in the opening frame. Adon handed out an additional two free passes in the second inning but was able to work out of the jam. In addition to inflating his ERA, Adon's inability to find the strike zone has also run up his pitch count. As a result, he's now completed fewer than five innings in five of his seven starts. Overall, he has a 7.03 ERA and 29:23 K:BB across 32 innings this season.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Joan Adon: Drops third straight
Adon (1-5) allowed three runs on three hits and five walks over five innings Friday, striking out six and taking a loss against the Angels.
After an RBI groundout from Shohei Ohtani in the first inning, Adon turned in three scoreless frames. He then coughed up a two-run double to Mike Trout in the fifth. Both his six punchouts and five walks were the highest he's posted in a start this season. Adon will carry a 6.99 ERA into his projected home outing against the Mets next week.... See More ...

Nationals' Joan Adon: Shaky in loss to Giants
Adon (1-4) took the loss Saturday, giving up four runs on four hits and three walks over four-plus innings in a 9-3 loss to the Giants. He struck out five.
The rookie right-hander continues to struggle. Adon has been tagged for at least four runs in four of his five starts this season, leading to a 7.33 ERA and 1.67 WHIP that seems entirely deserved given his 18.9 percent strikeout rate and 11.7 percent walk rate. The only thing keeping Adon in the rotation right now might be the Nationals' lack of viable alternatives.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Joan Adon: Gives up five runs Sunday
Adon (1-3) allowed five runs on six hits and a walk while striking out three in four innings to take the loss against the Giants on Sunday.
Adon earned the win Tuesday against the Diamondbacks by tossing 6.1 scoreless innings, but he was much less effective in Sunday's outing. He gave up a leadoff home run to Joc Pederson and struggled to turn things around later in the start. The right-hander has now given up at least four runs in three of his first four starts of the season, and he's posted a 6.98 ERA and 1.66 WHIP in 19.1 innings. He tentatively lines up for a rematch against the Giants on the road Saturday.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Joan Adon: Collects first MLB win
Adon (1-2) picked up the win in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Diamondbacks, giving up three hits and two walks over 6.1 scoreless innings in a 1-0 victory. He struck out five.
The young right-hander put together the best start of his big-league career so far, as he didn't allow a runner past second base while tossing 57 of 88 pitches for strikes in his first career win and first quality start. Adon has not had a good beginning to the season overall, posting a 5.87 ERA, 1.63 WHIP and 13:9 K:BB through 15.1 innings over three starts, but the Nationals will stick with him in the rotation for now given the 23-year-old's potential....

Nationals' Joan Adon: Starting second game of twin bill
Adon is scheduled to start the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader with the Diamondbacks, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.
After the Nationals' series opener with the Diamondbacks was postponed Monday due to inclement weather, Josiah Gray was pushed back a day in the pitching schedule and will take the hill for the first game of the twin bill. Though Adon will stay on his normal schedule to pitch the nightcap Tuesday, he'll likely be passed over for a second start this week in favor of Gray. With Gray expected to get the ball Sunday against the Giants on his normal four days' rest, Adon is unlikely to make his fourth start of the season until early next week against the Marlins....

Nationals' Joan Adon: Another poor outing
Adon (0-2) allowed six earned runs on nine hits and three walks while striking out five across 4.2 innings to take the loss Thursday against the Pirates.
Adon was handed a three-run lead prior to taking the mound, but he was unable to maintain the advantage. He surrendered a pair of home runs that accounted for half of the damage against him, and he also struggled to get pitches in the zone. Across a pair of starts and a total of nine innings, Adon has allowed 10 earned runs and seven walks. Prior to earning a spot in the Nationals' rotation to open the campaign, Adon had thrown only 23.1 combined innings between the upper levels of the minors and the major leagues. That makes a demotion to Triple-A Rochester a realistic possibility if his struggles continue, though for now Adon is projected to start Tuesday against Arizona.... See More ... See Less
Nationals' Joan Adon: Struggles in season debut
Adon (0-1) took the loss Saturday as the Nationals fell 5-0 to the Mets, giving up four runs on four hits and four walks over 4.1 innings while striking out three.
Making his second career start in the majors, Adon looked nervous, uncorking two wild pitches and plunking Starling Marte in addition to his free passes. Adon threw only 47 of 86 pitches for strikes and saw all four of the runs he allowed crossed the plate when Pete Alonso drove a fifth-inning fastball down the line for a grand slam. The Nationals don't have much in the way of rotation depth right now, so expect Adon to get more chances to show he belongs in the bigs. The right-hander at least gets a more favorable matchup on paper in his next scheduled start, Thursday on the road in Pittsburgh.... See More ... See Less
